I play a wide variety of music including Country (old and new), Classic Rock, Oldies and Blues. I also do instrumentals as well.
You can expect me to look professional, arrive on time, and provide you and your guests with some great music, whether it's a low-key intimate engagement party, a fun filled wedding reception or a full on party!
When possible (97% of the time) I arrive early enough so I can setup/sound check before your guests arrive - who wants equipment being hauled in or sound checks going on while your guests are trying to enjoy themselves?
I take requests, and if given enough notice can fulfill special requests for songs that I may not know already - all you have to do is ask!
Thank you for the opportunity - I'll do a great job for you!
